New TV Studio opens at UL
17 Nov 2016 :
A new €25k fit-out television news studio facility has been unveiled at the University of Limerick. RTE’s Bryan Dobson, who is Adjunct Professor of Journalism in UL officially, opened the new journalism facility.

Mr Dobson said the opening of the new studio marked “another important stage in the development of the University of Limerick School of Journalism.”

“Today more than ever it is vital that students of journalism receive training across all media platforms. The old boundaries that divided print from broadcasting are dissolving in the new online media environment.

The studio is part of a major expansion of UL’s journalism department, which was unveiled on Tuesday 15th and included a €25,000 fit out of new kit including a number of high end cameras, lighting and backdrop facilities for TV news production as well as equipment to enable and enhance content creation by students.

Journalism subject leader and lecturer in Broadcast Journalism at UL, Dr Fergal Quinn, said the investment was a “major boost” for the department.

“We are preparing students to work in a fast-changing industry and they have to be familiar with current broadcast technologies and workflows. We have invested in equipment that helps us train them in high end electronic news gathering and bulletin creation, to a TV broadcast quality. 

“This is part of an ongoing effort to put broadcast journalism front and centre of what we offer our journalism students here in UL. We intend to continue building our capacity in this area.”
